IMMA and the Crawford Art Gallery Receive €1million Fund to Purchase Artworks

The Minister for Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media, Catherine Martin TD, announced that significant funding of €1 million has been approved for two National Cultural Institutions, the Irish Museum of Modern Art and the Crawford Art Gallery. The funding will enable the acquisition of artworks to support Irish artists in these very difficult and challenging times. It will enable IMMA and Crawford to purchase artworks which will enhance the national collection as it invests in works from contemporary Irish artists or artists based in Ireland.

The Irish Museum of Modern Art is home to the National Collection of modern and contemporary art, while the Crawford Art Gallery is dedicated to the visual arts, both historic and contemporary.

This additional funding of €600,000 for the Irish Museum of Modern Art and €400,000 for the Crawford Art Gallery will allow both museums to expand the National Collection by acquiring works by Irish artists who need vital support at this time.
